Here's another spoonful of Mary Poppins

Missed your favourite nanny from the 1960s?

Fret not, because Mary Poppins is back in a new, original musical movie. In the sequel Mary Poppins Returns, coming to Singapore soon, the magical nanny is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder that are missing in their lives following a personal loss.

Emily Blunt stars as the practically perfect nanny who, at the snap of her fingers, turns ordinary tasks into extraordinary adventures. Lin-Manuel Miranda plays her friend Jack, a street lamplighter who helps to bring light - and life - to the streets of London.
